Information for parents about your child's graduation from Northside ISD

Notice: On August 29, 2013, school districts in Texas, including Northside Independent School District, received notice that Commissioner of Education Michael Williams intends to file a rule soon that would enable some seniors graduating in the school year 2013-2014, including summer 2014, to graduate under the new Foundation Plan approved by the 83rd Texas Legislature. While an outline of the plan is attached, please note that this rule has not been approved yet by the State Board of Education and will not go into effect until after approval is passed. If the plan is approved, the first step for a senior seeking to graduate this school year and summer 2014 under the Foundation Plan is to immediately consult with the student’s campus counselor. Please watch this site for further updates. Click here to download the proposed Foundation Plan for some seniors graduating in 2013-2014.
